Hyundai has recently revealed the 2021 i20 N Line trim globally. This is the first time Hyundai offers an N Line trim to the i20 model.
Hyundai has just revealed the N Line model for its popular i20 to the world’s enthusiasts. The 2021 Hyundai i20 N Line is a new performance-oriented range-topper for the third-gen i20 and is the newest model in the company’s N Line portfolio. Note that this is the very first time Hyundai gives the i20 an N Line trim level.
In line with other N Line models, the Hyundai i20 N Line features a very sporty visual package. It adopts aggressive front and rear bumpers combined with 17-inch alloy wheels along with a swanky dual-tone look, giving us a brief idea of what to expect from the full-bore i20 N hot hatch.
At the front, the i20 N Line gets a refreshed front grille housing an N-line badge and a beefier bumper featuring a grey character line that connects the fog lamps. The side profile of the car remains the same as against the lower trim, save for the 17-inch wheels and black side skirts. The rear end of the Hyundai i20 N Line also sports a redesigned diffuse-style bumper featuring chrome twin exhaust pipes and slightly-tweaked connected tail lamps.
The 2021 Hyundai i20 N Line will come in a choice of four exterior paint options including Phantom Black, Polar White, Brass and Aurora Grey.
The interior of the i20 N Line is largely similar to the recently updated i20, barring a host of cosmetic tweaks in the forms of N badging, bespoke steering wheel, red stitching, sport front seats, metal pedals and N-branded leather gear lever.
Under the hood, the 2021 Hyundai i20 N Line comes with a 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine making a mighty 83 horsepower. Also, you can opt for a punchier 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine developing two separate states of tune: 99 HP and 118 HP. The powertrain is offered with a 48 V mild-hybrid tech and an optional Hyundai’s iMT unit in addition to the 7-speed AT and manual option. The company has made some revisions to the car’s suspension and accelerator to enhance the driving experience.
Hyundai hasn’t revealed anything to bring the new i20 N Line to the Indian market. However, we are set to see the third-gen i20 being launched in our country in the festive season.
As for the new-gen Hyundai i20, the upcoming hatchback car will come with three engine options including a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, a 1.2-litre NA petrol along with a 1.5-litre diesel unit. Once launched, the third-gen Hyundai i20 will face the rivalries from the Maruti Baleno, Tata Altroz, Toyota Glanza and Honda Jazz.
